John Cena’s Ford GT Sold Once More, This Time For $1.32 Million

Α 2017 Ford GT formerly owned by John Cena was sold once again last weekend, fetching $1.32 million at a Mecum sale in Dallas.

As we reported in late September, the vehicle’s listing at the Dallas auction came just four weeks after the car was auctioned off for $1.54 million at Russo and Steele’s Monterey Car Week auction in August. This latest auction means the car is now in the hands of its sixth owner.

Curiously, the person who bought the American supercar during Monterey Car Week only put a single mile on it before getting Mecum to advertise it for sale. Evidently, the buyer only ever wanted to make a quick buck off it by flipping it almost immediately. Unfortunately for them, they lost over $200,000 – which, admittedly, is a bit curious.

Cena, one of the select few who were invited by the Blue Oval to part with $466,376 for the privilege of getting a GT, famously flipped it late last year a month after taking delivery. He was accused by the automaker of flipping the car despite signing a contract stipulating that he wouldn’t sell it during the first two years of ownership. Ford sued and ultimately won, allegedly forcing Cena to hand over the profits he made from the vehicle’s sale.

The professional wrestler, actor and TV host sold the car to a dealer, who sold it to another dealer, from whom it was acquited by a wealthy Californian farmer. The farmer loved it, but found it very impractical, so he decided to part ways with it prior to Monterey Car Week. At the time of the most recent Mecum auction, the GT had just 636 miles (1023 km) on its odometer.

There is thought to be just one other new-age Ford GT in existence that can be sold without any need for Ford’s consent. That car, a silver example, was auctioned off by its second owner at a Mecum auction in May. As the car was no longer in the hands of its original owner, Ford’s attempts to block the auction failed.

    is anyone surprised the previous owner lost? i’m not, it has changed hands too quickly too often in a short period of time.

    Pretty soon it’s going to have more past owners than mileage.

  • Wandering_Spirit

    I don’t quite get why having been owned by Jonh Cena for a few months makes it special. The car is gorgeous though.

    • It’s more to the fact that this is the only (well out of two) example that has been sold in used car market, people who don’t want to wait would love this.

    This is the cheap dirty trick of the supercar world.

    Serves him right. That’s what he gets for being greedy. Didn’t even get back the money he paid for it.

      Plus taxes, plus auction fees. Glad flip for profit backfired.

    I stay away from any used car that’s had more than one owner. Maybe two. In a few years, this will probably be a twelve owner car.
